What is your biggest academic accomplishment and why?
I would say my biggest academic accomplishment was getting an A on my first essay in Mrs. Ball’s honors English class because she grades very strictly, and I was so scared that she would think I was a terrible writer.

I learned how to play guitar, piano, and ukulele outside of Lakeview which really impacted my life as it helped me find a hobby and something to be passionate about.

I hope to become successful in a career that helps to positively impact people in some way. I also would like to travel around Europe.

    Living beside Jessica has been a highlight of our lives. When we needed help the most she would come and gather the babies and cart them to her house for playtime and a bath. I hope she knows how much that meant to me. She is one of the most kind people i know and I can only hope that my girls will grow up to be like her. The Lovells love you Jessica!!
